Probably. In most cases, it makes sense for people who have been injured in an accident to hire an attorney to assist them with their injury claim. Most Tennessee personal injury lawyers offer free consultations and free case evaluations. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident, you would be wise to take advantage of these free opportunities to learn how a lawyer can help you with your injury claim.
You should take the time to speak with multiple lawyers to find the one who is right for you. An experienced personal injury attorney knows how to negotiate settlements with insurance companies; knows what damages you are entitled to recover under Tennessee law; knows how to handle subrogation claims; knows the laws applicable to your claim (including the applicable statute of limitations, that can limit the time you have to file a lawsuit); and knows how to file a lawsuit and pursue a claim through trial, if necessary.
When you have suffered a serious injury in an accident due to someone else's negligence you likely will find yourself dealing with an insurance adjuster who is paid to handle these types of claims every day. You should level the playing field by hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer to fight for you. Hiring a lawyer can relieve the stress and confusion that often comes with dealing with insurance companies. This will allow you to focus on recovering from your injuries.
